West End Cast Recording from The Prince of Egypt musical to be released!
| By Jade Ali
The Prince of Egypt musical had its West End premiere at London’s Dominion Theatre in February 2020, which was just last month! Sadly, like all the other shows, it had to cease performances on Monday 16 March, when the theatres closed. The musical is new to us, meaning there was no prior cast recording to see us through this time without it. Our prayers have been answered and a West End Original Cast Recording will be released this week!
The Prince of Egypt musical Cast Recording
The stage version of this Dreamworks Animation classic has given this beloved story a whole new lease of life. Many booked tickets to The Prince of Egypt Musical because they love the story and the songs from the films, but when they witness it on stage and see the work of the most amazing award-winning creative team and a spectacular cast, they want to come back for more. Unfortunately, the show isn’t on at the moment and whilst we wait for it to return to the incredible West End Dominion Theatre’s stage, the newly announced original cast recording will be able to tide us over.
The Prince of Egypt musical original cast recording will be released on Friday 3 April 2020. The album will be released digitally and can be expected as a physical CD later in the year.
The album will include the original songs from the film, of the same name, as well as ten new songs by iconic composer Stephen Schwartz. Featured on the album will be ‘When You Believe’, ‘Deliver Us’, ‘All I Ever Wanted’ and ‘Through Heaven’s Eyes’. The album is produced by Dominick Amendum and Schwartz, along with executive producer Kurt Deutsch.
